Single R7 360 vs A10 7870k D.G. R7 250?

Jump to solution

I have an A10 7870k, and based on this post (A10-7870k Dual Graphics compatibility? ) the optimal GPU to do Dual Graphics with is the R7 250. When pricing one out on Newegg, I noticed the R7 360 is only $20 more, so I'm wondering: What would give me better results: a single R7 360 or my A10 running in D.G. mode with an R7 250?

System Specs:

Case: Azza CSAZ--208S Black and Red Mid Tower

Mobo: MSI A88x Gaming Micro ATX

APU: A10 7870k running at stock speeds (for now ;p)

Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo

Ram: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2400mhz C.L. 10 (have another 8 to add if necessary)

PSU: Enermax Triathlor Eco 450w

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB

SSD: Mushkin Enhanced Eco2 60GB

Case Fans: 2x Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm, 1x stock 120mm fan

OS: Windows 10

While Dual graphics is an option and works pretty well from my experience.  I'd recommend going with the R7 360 as it'll give you an overall smoother and more enjoyable experience.  AND, since you already have an A10 you never have to worry about having a backup should there be an issue down the road, so that's my recommendation

Honestly, for just a little more I'd pick up an R9 285 (Tonga core) before stock runs out. You won't have to mess around with dual graphics and performance will be overall better. I see at least one for $159.99 after rebate on the Egg.

Hi chosenofthor​ - I asked my Twitter pals what they would recommend, and so far everyone has said the R7 360 over the dual graphics.
